ID: CC11170
Two interpenetrant, part-cubic crystals of Fluorite from the enigmatic and highly sought after Rotherhope Fell mine, close to Alston on Alston Moor in eastern Cumbria.  The two part-crystals have edges measuring 4.4 cm and 3.9 cm, but with most of each crystal missing due to cleavage and the broad point of attachment when in-situ.  Despite this and some damage to the remaining edges, this is probably one of the most stunning colour-zoned crystals we have seen from Rotherhope Fell, a mine made famous because of it colour zoned crystals.  The zoning is too complex to accurately describe here, but can be seen well in the accompanying photos.  The near surface zone is stunning with inter-banded indigo, pale blue and colourless, grading to inner core of intermixed purple, pale cherry-red and smoky mauve.  Stunning!
